Fun in the Fall!

This weekend we took Eli to his first Pumpkin Patch! It was a lot of fun!

We took a hayride out to the patch and spent some time in the field of pumpkins! Eli was so fascinated! He would walk up to a pumpkin, squat, and pat it! He also tried picking up a few of them and was really confused when they were too heavy!

We all picked out a pumpkin for ourselves and by the end of the day Eli kept saying "pupkin, pupkin!" After pumpkin picking we walked around the farm and looked at all of the animals at the petting zoo.

It's really fun to watch Eli explore his world! He loves wandering around and watching/interacting with people. He especially likes older boys and girls, he tries to talk to them and is constantly intrigued by what they are doing! There was one little girl on our hayride who he tried to talk to and kept smiling at, it was adorable!

The next day we took Eli to Trunk or Treat at our church. This year Eli was an owl! I ordered him a hat and sewed "feathers" on to one of his shirts. It was a pretty simple costume, but he looked very cute!

Unfortunately he kept taking his hat off, so most of the time he just looked like a little kid with a weird shirt on!
He was really amused by the other kid's costumes. The two other little ones in our group were monkeys and Eli could not stop staring at them!

It was pretty funny! I think his favorite part of the whole thing was getting a sucker!

Next weekend we plan on carving our pumpkins! It will be interesting to see how Eli likes that!
